Posted by Sarah Mitchell | 29 January 2014

Perspectives on Bo-Nita
Sundays, February 16, 23, March 2 & 9
In the Ellyn Bye Studio immediately following the 2 p.m. matinee.
Please join Portland Center Stage in a partnership with the YWCA of Greater Portland for a series of 30-minute post-show discussions following every weekend matinee performance of Bo-Nita. Hear and share personal reactions and thoughts inspired by the play, filtered through the perspectives of social justice activists, counselors and social workers.  Speakers will have read the play, visited rehearsal, attended the production, and will be ready to share their thoughts on how the play connects directly to our community.
Currently Scheduled Speakers
·         February 16 – Claire Barrera from El Programa Hispano Proyecto, author Catherine Garvin, and Brighton Kimbell from Native American Youth and Family Center.
·         February 23 – Stacy Bancroft from New Avenues for Youth, Lisa Batista from Trillium Family Services, and Emily Drew, Professor of Sociology at Willamette University.
·         March 2 – Social Justice Advocate Christina Bondurant, Corinn deWaard from Rotary Club of Portland, and Irene Konev of Konev Consulting.
·         March 9 – Erin Fairchild from the Defending Childhood Initiative, Nick Guerrero from Raphael House of Portland, Kerry Naughton from Partnership for Safety and Justice, and Meg Wills from Impact NW
Please feel free to join us for just one or all of the discussions.  You do not need a ticket to the show to join the post-show discussion.  Just show up around 3:30 p.m. to the Ellyn Bye Studio. These discussions are FREE.
